The perfect boyfriend jean is similar to finding the perfect man you’ve heard about it but is it a denim myth?
When it comes to perfect boyfriend one woman’s trash is another treasure! (You see where I’m going with this). So when I’m approched by a customer in the denim department at Liberty looking for that illusive pair I ask, “now are you looking for something baggy and oversized or slim and fitted“. Most have no idea until they try on both spectrums of the boyfriend. So I pull out the following extremes to see which they prefer…
A: The Ex-Boyfriend Slim by AG £223 B: Mid Blue Le Garcon Mid Rise Boyfriend Jeans £225 C: Acne Studios The Boy Jeans £190 D: Phoebe low-slung boyfriend jeans £220
Often the slimmer fit are more flattering especially on the bottom. I find that more mature women prefer a more relaxed style as they are so comfortable. A relaxed baggier fit really works if you have a larger thigh area. The most important thing to remember is the boyfriend style is bigger than your normal skinny style so take a couple of sizes of the same style into the changing room to give yourself the option of sizing up or down. You also have the option to roll up the hem which elongates the leg especially if you team with heels. It’s a staple denim style so if you get it right it will be truly faithful.

Sadly my style of boyfriend jean didn’t stand the test of time and I’m now going through a divorce! But I can pass on my experience of finding the best pair of jeans for your bodyshape, so pop into Liberty’s denim department and ask for Sam!
